How to make a sports wager

Once you have signed up and created an account, you will log into the app. Most apps are built on simple interfaces that are easy for users to navigate.  

In NJ sports betting apps, there exists several different lines and varieties in sports betting options for New Jersey bettors. Usually, you can view betting lines before logging into your account. Bets are often organized by sport, betting types, and promotions. Different sports betting apps will organize their features differently. You will be able to view the list of sports markets on a separate menu. 

Sports offered will most likely include:

  • Football 
  • Basketball 
  • Baseball 
  • Tennis
  • Boxing and MMA
  • Golf
  • Hockey
  • Motorsports racing
  • Rugby
  • Soccer

A sport will only appear if there are events available. Once you choose a sport, you will see a new menu with different leagues available in that sport. You will also find options for futures, proposition bets, and partial game wagers. 

It is important to note that you must be located within the state of New Jersey in order to make a wager on an NJ mobile sports betting app. Gambling apps use geolocation technology to ensure that players are gambling within legal jurisdictions. 

Betting variety on NJ sports betting apps

One of the more traditional types of bets, a moneyline, is a bet on a specific team to win. While other bets involve the winning team and the margin in which they won, a money line is simply a bet on who wins. Games will offer moneylines while events typically offer totals. Point spreads or spread betting refers to different types of betting on the outcome of an event, in which the accuracy of the bet affects the payoff. These apply to games like football and basketball. Run or puck lines apply to baseball and hockey. 

Proposition bets are based on the occurrence or non-occurrence of something during a game. These do not necessarily affect the outcome of the match, at least not directly. This includes who will score first or last, alternative points spreads, totals on certain performances by players or by teams, and many others. 

Future bets are made on games or events taking place in the future, such as who will come in first place for a season. Oddsmakers choose the odds based on potential outcomes. 

Parlays are offered on point spread and moneyline events and involve two or more teams winning. It is difficult to win a parlay however they offer larger payouts than if one were to bet on a single team to win. It is important to note that parlay cards come with their own rules, therefore, it is important to read the rules before placing your bets. 

In order to create your parlay, you must choose the games that you wish to parlay to your list. Sports betting apps have different features for setting up parlays. 

A round robin bet is a bet with multiple parlays at once.

Teasers are available with football and basketball games, giving points on each spread in that teaser. Sides and totals can be teased. 

InPlay or In-game wagering allows bettors to place bets after the sporting event has already begun. In-game betting is offered on typical wagers such as money line, point spreads, props, and totals.
